Aaron Rodgers' contract situation with the Packers is garnering all of the headlines, but there's another star player reaching the end of his current deal in Green Bay.

Wideout Davante Adams, who led the league last season with 18 receiving touchdowns, is entering the final year of his contract.

Unlike his quarterback, who is staying away from the team, Adams attended the first day of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday and said he'll be present for this summer's training camp even if he's not signed to an extension by then.

"Yeah, I'll be here, man. I signed up to go to work and play. I'm from East Palo Alto, California. I grew up with zero dollars. I'm not forfeiting any of my money that I've earned and signed for already," Adams said. "I'll be there for sure."

Adams was one of five Packers receivers who didn't show up for OTAs in May. He said the no-show wasn't coordinated and he was both looking after his body and spending more time with his young daughter.

"I don't think I need to prove too much in OTAs right now," he said. "Just keep making sure I'm in shape and still get my workouts in. That's what matters."
